Thank you for your interest in being a volunteer with Minneapolis Public Schools.  In order to become a volunteer at MPS, you must complete all of the following: 

1. Complete an online application- there are different forms for Community Member Volunteers and Parent/Guardian Volunteers

2. Some volunteer positions require you to complete a criminal background check. You will be notified if this is required.  Please allow 2 weeks for the background check process to be completed.

3. Complete an orientation to your volunteer position.  If you know your volunteer placement, check with your school contact about orientation.  If you do not have a volunteer placement, orientation will be scheduled once we find the right volunteer fit for you.



Student Teachers completing required hours for a licensure program (practicum, field experience, etc) please see the Student Teaching Website
